Finding Trail Descriptions

So as not to repeat myself excessively, I am reducing the amount of description of trails that have already been posted. Please use the search function ( upper left) to find older posts which have more detailed trail descriptions and pictures. You can also use this to find specific hikes either by trail or mountain.

2/19/16 DeMeritt Forest

Upper 20's but sunny and no wind. Another day with questionable trail conditions sent us to nearby trails.

There was more snow than expected and little recent activity ( we saw one set of boot tracks) but the snow was firm with easy walking.

There were some icy patches but mostly easily got around

Until --- the White Trail has a very wet section which I thought would be frozen and Ok. I went through the ice  and was in water over the top of my boot. Kelley got some water but did not like the ice breaking under her as she walked.

Back on solid ground

 A pretty good hike except for one cold wet foot. Kelley was enthusiastic and did well. We did not meet the person who had made the tracks , or anyone else.  1  1/2 hours
